Abstract:

The work reported here has yielded significant new results in airborne target identification. The framework of the approach consists of a joint target tracking and recognition scenario, and a general mathematical approach for addressing this and similar problems. By tracking the kinematics of target, it is shown how the software is better able to focus on which class of orientations and aspect angles to start the template matching for the identification phase. An S-band radar operating in a wideband mode along with an optical sensor constituted the two high resolution data resources. Simulations were also developed, including outputs from X-patch, for each of these sensors. Demonstrations of the software running are also presented.
